...I attended the Tournament last night as a member of the judging panel and had a BLAST! Dinner was good, the competition was exciting to watch, and I met some really fine people.
There are still plenty more battles going on - one each Monday and Tuesday for the rest of the month, and the finals will be in September. If you have the opportunity to attend one, I urge you to do so. It's like watching Iron Chef, live and in person!
A longer post on the subject will be up later. Stay tuned.
